So SOC imaging systems might have 3-4 years life-time

This surprised me..the rearview camera stops working, because the embedded memory on the NVIDA SOC (System On Chip) worn-out it's NAND memory chips

"Worn-out NAND flash blamed for Tesla vehicle gremlins, such as rearview cam failures and silenced audio alerts"

"These all use an infotainment system powered by Nvidia's Tegra 3 system-on-chips that include 8GB of eMMC NAND storage, which is typically found in phones and cheap laptops. The trouble is that these flash chips are wearing out, having hit their program-erase cycle limits, and are unable to reliably store data, causing glitches in operation. The storage controllers can no longer find good working NAND blocks to use, and thus fail."

And I gotta believe replacing those will be an expensive PIA...and I wonder how long NVIDIA is contractually obligated to supply Tesla with them?
